At Liu Haisu Art Museum near Yuyintang, there are three exhibitions open during CNY, including a multimedia painting exhibition that explores the Haipai school, which is when eastern and western influences meet; an exhibition about the influence of ancient Chinese engraving on Japanese woodblock printing (Ukiyo-e), which starts on February 1; and a dedicated space on the 4th floor showcasing Liu Haisu's paintings. Also free.
The massive Power Station of Art is still generating diverse, youthful energy during CNY, offering Shanghai Biennale alongside Emerging Curators Project 2018.
